BULLSEYES Pit Beef and Catering Review

I do not consider myself a foodie. While I write about products that I love and recommend, I have never written about a restaurant. But I MUST share my thoughts about BullsEyes Pit Beef.  The sandwich and fries were so delicious that I'm a bit angry I can't drive over and treat myself to some delicious pit beef today.

BullsEyes Pit Beef and Catering

BullsEyes is located on BelAir Road, Nottingham, Maryland just north of 695 (near Giant).  I had previously lived in that area, and was back in the area two days ago for an appointment. Since I was a bit early and had time for a bite to eat, I zipped over to a sandwich shop that I used to eat at regularly.  I was surprised and delighted to find a Pit Beef spot instead. 

I love good pit beef.

I have not had extremely good pit beef since visiting one of my sons when they were deployed down south.  So I wasn't expecting a great sandwich but gave it a try. I'm so glad I did!

Amazingly Delicious Pit Beef

As I said, I'm not foodie. Nor am a I restaurant reviewer. But my medium pit beef sandwich was incredibly delicious. I'm not sure if I've ever had better. As I said, I'm not a foodie, so I'll just let you see what the sandwich looked like and you'll have to trust my judgement about how good it tasted.

Courteous and Happy Staff

I can't tell you how tired I am of grumpy waitstaff (customer service folks, cashiers, etc).  Yes, we are all human and have bad days. But if you can't even lift your hand to take my dollar, perhaps you should have just stayed home. This was not the case at BullsEyes. There was not a single malcontent on duty. Despite being extremely busy while I was there, they were all polite, hard-working, and visibly happy.

In fact, I enjoyed listening to one of the guys at the grill, who whistled while he worked. I was given a free, gigantic (also delicious) pickle because they thought they had kept me waiting. In fact, I hadn't felt like I had waited long at all.

I sat for a few minutes at the high top at the front window.  The very small restaurant was neat and clean. The soda bar was clean and tidy.  As was the condiment bar.  I had chosen a hickory sauce and it too was delicious. Perfect for the sandwich.

As I said, I can't wait to go back.  In the meantime, here's a copy of the menu (one side of the menu).  You should look them up on facebook for current contact and menu information.  

Hopefully, it won't be many more years until I live at my Shack, on that mountain ridge. And I'll have to learn to cook my own pit beef. But until then, you'll be able to find me ordering at BullsEyes on a regular basis.

  1. Sounds like a restaurant anyone would love! I do agree, I get tired of the grumpy waitstaff in restaurants. That alone would make it an enjoyable experience, but getting an excellent meal too would make it well worth a bit of a drive. If I ever get to Nottingham (or close) I will be sure to stop in for a great dinner.

    1. I went a second time (yesterday) and while I was in more of a hurry... it was just as good of an experience with the staff. AND yummy sandwich to go. I might have to move back to that neighborhood just for the food. haha.

  2. Your meal at Bulls Eyes Pit Beef sounds so incredibly delicious that my mouth is watering for a sandwich right now (and I haven't even had breakfast yet!). Wish I lived close enough to 'indulge'. Wonderful review.

    1. It was so good that I had to stop after work yesterday. And I want it again today!
